Mark Hamill Really Hates One ‘Star Wars’ Toy in Particular

When you’re part of a giant franchise, there are going to be toys of you. That’s just how these things tend to work. Star Wars is in a realm all of its own, with toys ranging from giant Star Destroyer LEGO sets to Elan Sleazebaggano action figures, and, naturally, the stars of the franchise have their favorites and least-favorites. Mark Hamill recently shared his opinion on what he thinks is the worst Luke Skywalker toy, and it’s quite a doozy.

Johnny Depp Apologizes for Trump Assassination Joke, Capping Off a Very Bad Week

It hasn’t been a great week for Johnny Depp. By now you’ve probably heard about his Trump assassination joke that’s garnered mounds of controversy. And while that story, and the actor’s apology, have gotten the most attention in the media, that’s not the only development in Depp news.

Don’t Ask ‘Shameless’ Star Elliot Fletcher About His Backstory

If you look back on the history of transgender characters in film and TV, you’ll find few depictions of trans men. Besides Hillary Swank in Boys Don’t Cry, there was Daniela Sea’s Max on The L Word, Glenn Close and Janet McTeer in Albert Nobbs, and a few minor TV roles here and there. The one thing all those roles have in common? They weren’t played by trans actors. But Elliot Fletcher is swiftly changing that and paving the way for a better future on the small screen.

McDonald’s Has an Entire ‘Despicable Me 3’ Menu And It Is Really Something

I don’t quite understand why, but people really seem to want to eat the Minions, the lovable yellow goobers from the Despicable Me franchise. When Minions came out, there were Minions Twinkies, and there have been Minions menus at IHOP too. Now generally I am a big fan of movie food, but this goes beyond my limits. The Minions are sentient beings; why would you want to consume them?!?

11 Movies Ron Howard Directed That Prove His Greatness

If his past efforts are any indication, Ron Howard's visit to a galaxy far, far away (Woo, 'Star Wars'!) will go off very well.

Get Ready Pitches, Here Comes the ‘Pitch Perfect 3’ Poster

Pitch Perfect has become of the unlikeliest (and therefore more welcome) Hollywood franchises in recent years. The series combines the college hijinks of something like Animal House with the competition of an underdog sports movie like The Bad News Bears, and throws in just a dash of Christopher Guest comedy. The first movie was a particular delight, and while the second film didn’t quite recapture the magic, I’m hoping the third film, Pitch Perfect 3, will wrap up the series with style.

Watch a Supercut of Every Example of Product Placement in Michael Bay’s Movies

If I had to pick the most egregious example of product placement ever, I would nominate the scene from Transformers: Age of Extinction, when the entire movie stops to examine the wreckage of a crash involving an alien spaceship and a Bud Light truck. The camera pans across a street littered with Bud Light bottles; then Mark Wahlberg picks one up, cracks it open, and takes a healthy swig. And while he’s shilling beer, there’s a second product placement in the background; just over his shoulder, very much in focus, is a giant Goodyear Tires sign.

Warner Bros. Wants to Move Away From ‘Auteur Directors,’ Challenging Notion of What Studios Are For

Here’s a bit of a thought experiment. What, in your estimation, are major movie studios for? In the most basic and obvious terms, they exist to finance, facilitate the production of, and distribute motion pictures. But it’s not that simple — what ambitions should that work represent? Does a studio use its clout, resources, and organization to endorse art, to give a voice (and budget) to filmmakers who can entertain and challenge us, hopefully well enough to make a tidy sum for the studio as well? Or is the lone purpose of a movie studio to generate money, film production just happening to be the method by which they’ve chosen to do that?

Mark Wahlberg Thinks (Wishes?) Michael Bay Will Return to ‘Transformers’

For all intents and purposes, every sign points to Michael Bay and the Transformers series going their separate ways after The Last Knight. Bay even wrote a goodbye letter to the franchise thanking everyone involved for five movies’ worth of explosions, robots fighting each other, and female characters introduced from the legs up. But there’s one person who thinks he might be faking it.
